"Grace in the First Person" - Book Review

Author:     Lee Pearson Knapp
Publisher: Baker Books

Author Lee Pearson Knapp offers a fine first book with "Grace in the First Person." Knapp, a published writer (Christianity Today, National Public Radio) and mother of three boys, dug deep into her personal history to pen a collection of 15 light-hearted essays. Her musings — whether on falling in love with her lacrosse-hunk husband, learning to navigate through the Washington, D.C., maze of traffic where she lives or aiding her children in raising, then losing spring chicks for a school experiment — reflect characteristics of God’s grace in everyday experiences.

Women, especially mothers, will relate to Knapp’s straightforward, humorous storytelling because she paints most of her pictures from her experiences as a wife and parent. The 200-page "Grace in the First Person" is an easy read guaranteed to garner a few chuckles and evoke good memories similar to Knapp’s experiences through the daily grind.
